Blackpool striker Raul Correia has signed for National League side Guiseley on six-month loan.

The Portuguese striker, who was born in Angola, is now hoping to get some games under his belt having failed to make an appearance last season.

He said: “I’m really pleased to be joining the club, I’ve played a few games with the lads in pre-season and I have enjoyed it all so far.

“I’m excited by the players I will be on the pitch with and I feel I can develop partnerships, score goals and hopefully help Guiseley achieve their aims.”

Prior to joining Radcliffe Correia signed for Chorley on Christmas Eve, 2015, and then signed a dual registration with Trafford in February 2016.

Last season he was only an unused substitute for Blackpool.
